Vegetables / Quick Jamaican Jerk Green
Green beans can be quick, simple and very tasty. Especially when
you cook them up as an island delicacy. Jamaican Jerk seasoning
has been used on vegetables since Jerk seasoning has been around.
Below is a simple preparation for green beans that brings beans
into a whole new light.
Cut the tips off of the green beans. You can leave them whole
or cut them into bite size pieces. It is important that they are
similar in size either way.
Heat about 1 tablespoon of oil in your pan (med- high) until
it just begins to smoke.
Toss in green beans and toss lightly for about 1 1/2 minutes.
Add butter and toss to coat.
Sprinkle about 1 tablespoon Knox's
Jamaican Jerk dry rub onto beans and toss to coat.
Remove from heat and serve hot.
This recipe can be adapted for just about any vegetable. We personally
have tried it on cauliflower, carrots, asparagus and onions.
